    APUG "Spy", view new content in real time with our spy tool..

    Hi All,

    This tool seems to work well. Since APUG has upwards of 700+ posts per day you can now watch new content appear in real time on the spy page. I believe the tool populates recent 10 or so posts/threads then adds to the list in real time. To access the page click the "Spy" link in the forum sub navigation as shown below:



    The spy will be more entertaining during peak hours of course.. I have not fully been able to test it so if you have any major problems just let me know.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    So it's effectively an RSS feed of the site then.

    Can you do the same for HybridPhoto & vice versa ?

    Similar to a rss feed. Once hybrid is upgraded it will have everything APUG has.

    Makes me dizzy...

    Seems to me calling it 'spy' is a little creepy. Why not 'live feed' or something?

    Cheers, Richard

    Heh, nice, I just checked it out - and yeah, I have the same issue - Sirius Glass all over the place.

    But kudos, a neat feature indeed - now when I'm at a cafe the constantly scrolling text will hopefully attract some eyes...maybe I'll hook up a projector and broadcast it in Tienanmen Square...if there are any film buffs who can read English it should draw them into the fold...but that's not too likely around here.

    Overall: nice

    I know I am getting mentally slow, however, I like new gadgets.

    However, just what good is this new tool?

    All I see are post coming in like a clock second hand ticking away. What purpose?

    Please, take it easy on an older guy.

    Very cool Sean,

    But I think it might be nice to have this option also as a user setting for the APUG homepage. E.g., give users the option to have a "static" list on APUG homepage, that needs to be refreshed hitting F5 like it is now, or have this dynamic "Spy" list displayed in the "Latest posts" box.

    For that matter, it might be an option in APUG's sidebar as well...

    Just some stupid ideas... no high priority

    That only happens in the initialization phase of the list. After its filled up, it only shows posts coming in at a much more slow rate. Remember, Sean talked about +/- 700 posts per day appearing on APUG. That means just 1 post in 2 minutes. Not to bad.

    APUG would need to grow to 4.8 million(!) members before we had 1 post every second!

    I don't see that happening any time soon
